🧔🏽 GET HAIRY FOR HEADWAY 👨🏼‍🦳
Headway East Kent like many other charities have been hard hit recently due to the impact of COVID-19, and have been unable to organise many of our usual awareness days that would also bring in much-needed funds, which allow us to continue to support and provide the service we do to so many brain-injured adults and their families in the East Kent area.
So we put our heads together, and our clients came up with the idea – ‘Get Hairy for Headway’.
On 1st November 2020, many of our male clients put their razors aside for the month and let their facial follicles flow free in support of, and in the hope of raising funds for Headway East Kent.
With online donations alone, the guys raised an amazing amount exceeding £700, and that isn’t including offline amounts which have yet to be collected and totalled up.
Here you can see the gents who participated and the link to the page set up for this particular fundraiser.
Well done gents!! And a big thank you also to all who donated.

The Dover clients had an outing to the Battle of Britain Memorial at Capel on the 19th September.

They had a lovely walk around the grounds and admired the fabulous view of Folkestone.

The group then enjoyed a nice cuppa in the cafe, followed by lunch at the West Hougham Beefeater on the way home.

The Dover branch had a group discussion recently on ‘Compromise’.

The session started with a discussion on why a ‘win-win’ outcome is preferable to a ‘win-lose’ or ‘lose-lose’ outcome and how this business term relates to
personal relationships.

We then went on to discuss 5 everyday scenarios where opposing views can cause conflict. The focus on this was to encourage clients to look at different perspectives and see things from
another persons point of view. From this base of understanding, the clients were able to work out some possible compromise solutions. The clients were given a handout at the end which had some useful pointers on changing attitudes when in conflict with another person.

Do you find this to be an issue in your relationships?

How do you deal with scenarios with differing opinions that can cause conflict?

Feel free to discuss this over on our Facebook page, just click on the link below, we’d be interested to hear your thoughts.
